Disney's Wilderness Lodge

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I liked that this property is close to the parks. Taking a boat ride to the Magic Kingdom is almost as good as a theme park ride. Property was clean and there were a lot of things to do.

Best Disney resort we have stayed at! Excellent in all aspects!

Loved the beds and the ceiling fan. Would love to have a microwave in room and the water smelled bad but other than that it was a wonderful stay!! Thoughtful additions such as a ceiling fan in the room, after burn gel, lots of towels. Choice of 3 restaurants in the hotel and love the boat ride to Magic Kingdom!

Nice place. Boat transportation to Magic Kingdom a nice touch.

My two friends and I stayed here for a girls trip. We had a great time and loved the resort. The room was plenty big and we enjoyed the fridge and coffee machine. We did have issues with our billing with the MagicBands. This happens almost every time I go with friends and we have multiple credit cards associated with the reservation. The front desk staff were helpful in trying to solve the issue, but it has happened three different times and is frustrating. Other than that, the hotel was great. We loved Geyser Point and Territory Lounge. A nice time!

This is one of my favorite hotels at Disney. It is close to the Magic Kingdom. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean. I love the ambience of the Wilderness Lidge. It is the perfect place to relax after a day at the parks.

Really nice but a lot of construction and multiple restaurant closures. We weren't notified of this until we got a phone call 2 days before our trip. Other than that, the pool was excellent and so was the staff. Food was mediocre but 2 places were closed so maybe better. The trip was fun.

spent 36 hrs inside while hurricane Matthew outside. slept like a baby. Well built, quiet comfortable resort

We had a fun time in our stay and used the pool almost daily. We liked the water slide at the pool. We liked the roaring fork snack place in the hotel which is very convenient for breakfast and other quick eats. We also liked the view from our room which directly faces the Magic Kingdom fireworks. The only minor inconvenience is that the hotel is under renovation and the only elevator available for use is one with some walk distance away from the main lobby.

So close to magic kingdom bus ride is only 5 min, boat ride a few min longer but nice leisure ride in + closer to bag check. Only down fall is the quick service restaurant roaring fork has a limited menu.

Great experience and location; only odd thing was the sinks. Strangely, they were set back too far from the edge of the vanity counter.

We had a great view of the boat light parade from our balcony, great pool, attentive lifeguards, convenient pool bar, convenient quick service food, good room service. The only thing that was annoying was hearing the boat horns until 11:30pm because we were close to the dock. The hotel service was a great example of what you expect from Disney--very helpful and kind. The hotel is currently renovating certain sections, the Villa pool is closed because they are rearranging that recreational area, including the beach. However, the construction wasn't a nuisance at all. Maybe the only irritating thing was that it made the main pool a little more crowded, but it wasn't bad at all and they had a lot of lifeguards.

We enjoy staying at this hotel. The food in the fast service restaurant is good and the location is great for getting to and from the Magic Kingdom.

This hotel has the best balance for, value for the money, location to Disneyland, and a good and authentic Disneyland atmosphere.

We had a great time. Transportation was timely. The pool was crowded and it was difficult to find 2 chairs together. Other than that the trip was awesome. I would recommend the hotel and would come back as well.

Plus: Great staff all around..check in and restaurant staff were great! Food in main restaurant was great. Minus: beds way too soft, dresser was scratched and worn, main restaurant was closed from 2:30-5:00 which was crazy, fast food restaurant was limited compared to other hotels.

Wish I had more time to hang out at the hotel. There were numerous activities at the site and pool was tons of fun.
